BrightPay was introduced in 2013 by Thesaurus Software, creators of the number one payroll software in Ireland, Thesaurus Payroll Manager.
Currently, BrightPay is used to process payroll for over 150,000 businesses across Ireland and the UK. Thesaurus Payroll Manager is used for a further 50,000 businesses.
BrightPay was designed with the user in mind. It’s easy to use and has a very clear interface, while providing superior functionality.
BrightPay has more advanced functionality than Thesaurus, including the ability to add an unlimited number of payslip items, the ability to roll back payroll for employees on an individual basis, and enables flexible reporting with a built in report writer.
At just €149 per tax year, BrightPay’s standard licence allows users to process payroll for an unlimited number of employees and includes free phone and email support. The bureau licence (€299) allows users to process payroll for unlimited companies.
Our support team consists of 15 highly talented and friendly individuals. With a 99% customer satisfaction rate for BrightPay’s customer support, they are considered to be ‘the gem of the company’ by many customers.
BrightPay recently released a new optional add-on product, BrightPay Cloud. This facilitates automatic backups to a secure cloud portal, the ability to invite employees to their own self service portal, and includes HR features such as annual leave management and document uploads.

Our development team are very responsive and try to fit as much features as possible into each release of BrightPay. We are currently working on adding a payroll journal export to accounting packages.
A UK version of BrightPay is also available. With the payroll landscape changing in Ireland over the coming years, including PAYE Modernisation and Automatic Enrolment, we have first hand experience of this in the UK.
BrightPay’s sister product, Bright Contracts has also been around since 2013. Bright Contracts enables employers to seamlessly create employment contracts and staff handbooks. Book a demo of Bright Contracts to find out more.
